At my mother-in-law’s request:
2 cups crushed vanilla wafers*
2 sticks butter, softened
2 pkgs (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 cup sugar
16 oz. Crushed pineapples, drained
3 – 5 bananas, sliced
Mix crushed vanilla wafers with 1 stick of butter. Press wafer/butter mixture into 9 x 13 pan.
Using an electric mixer, mix remaining stick of butter with cream cheese and 1 cup sugar. Spread mixture over wafers. Layer with crushed pineapples and sliced bananas. Cover with cool whip. Refrigerate.
*I use a mini-food processor to crush wafers fine.
